    License No. 1 offers a unique experience, like no other. This underground speakeasy-style cocktail lounge is a tribute to the elegant charm of the early 20th century. Step back in time with classic, handcrafted libations, chef-prepared small plates, and a lively atmosphere when you enter this hidden gem in the heart of downtown Boulder.

    When Hotel Boulderado opened its doors in 1909, the City of Boulder was dry having outlawed the sale of demon rum and spirits within city limits in 1907. In 1969, one of the first legal licenses to serve hard liquor in a restaurant was issued to the bar located in the basement of Hotel Boulderado. Today License No. 1 continues with the very same liquor license first issued in 1969. We are proud to continue Hotel Boulderado’s legal tradition!
